When an alien race known as the Adviera abduct thirteen-year-old Gary Jones, they give him the power to move objects with his mind. Unfortunately, this cool new ability comes with a cost. The aliens repeatedly abduct Gary and force him to complete dangerous tasks alongside other Earth kids with abilities.
Under the guidance of his alien trainer, Gary must develop a symbiotic bond with her and learn to control his ability. This task becomes increasingly difficult as the aliens continually change their training regimen without warning. In order to perfect his power, Gary needs to trust the Adviera, but they are keeping secrets. The aliens believe Gary could be the key to saving their race and are grooming him to lead their war effort.
Too bad Gary wants nothing to do with the Adviera or their ridiculous demands. He just wants to finish his service quickly, so he can use his power to exact revenge on the school bully. But if Gary fails the Adviera, it’s not just the aliens who will suffer. The fate of humanity could also be at risk.
The Adviera Abductions, is an Upper Middle Grade Science Fiction novel that blends Sky High and Ender’s Game, with butt kicking aliens.

Spending an hour in a jail cell for property damage was long enough for Gary to know he never wanted a punishment like that again. Nonetheless, his mother’s watchful eye felt like an eternity in a cell. Now he had fifty three and a half seconds before she marched up the stairs and pounded on his door. After that came the threat to take the door off its hinges. She’d done it before and he’d hated it. He needed that barrier. With slumped shoulders, he slid off his bed and unlocked the door.
Trudging down the steps, he found his mom standing in the kitchen, arms crossed, dog leash in hand. Buster, their golden retriever, looked up wagging his tail and panting.
"It’s about time, young man." Her laser like stare threatened to cut him in two.
Gary shrugged and pointed to his ear, hoping she’d buy the excuse. With a swift movement she yanked the wire hanging around his neck and ripped out the earbuds.
